Thursday, June 6, 2024 is Secure Your Load Day, dedicated to raising awareness of the dangers of unsecured loads on the road and sharing best practices for securing items. Learn more on the Secure Your Load website.

In 2016, Robin Abel started the Secure Your Load safety campaign to get the word out that federal monies are available for public education on load securement AND to encourage the states to educate their citizens. Secure Your Load also aims to reduce litter on roads; as a nation, we spend approximately $11.5 BILLION to clean our roads and it is estimated that 20-40% of road pollution comes from unsecured loads.

Today, most U.S. states have signed proclamations declaring June 6th as Secure Your Load Day. Robin encourages partnerships within each state and recommends Secure Your Load programs to waste facilities. Education and law enforcement have notably reduced deaths, injuries, and property damage, but Robin believes that while nationwide state patrols and police are doing much to help, it takes us all to make a difference and to keep our families safe on the roads!
